@asaveljevs I can't believe I forgot Zabbix had a server log! What do you think would cause these errors? pastebin.com/3k9jKCTw

comment Piping wget output to /dev/null in cron
@amalloy Only in bash. In sh, which is usually what cron uses, the ampersand redirect does not work.

comment Zabbix Graphs Data is Intermittent
@asaveljevs I'm running Zabbix 1.8.20, and I don't think those keys exist: [root@monit ~]# zabbix_get -s localhost -k zabbix[process,poller,avg,busy] | wc -l: 0

It hasn't crashed again yet... I'm choosing this as the answer. Thanks!

comment Unpredictable Boot Failure of Dell 2950 II
I don't want to sound too optimistic, but after adding the nofb option to GRUB, I haven't had it reboot itself once yet. I rebooted several times, several different ways to give it the best chance to crash, and it didn't. So that's a good sign.

@joeqwerty This is the first thing I do as a matter of course, but it didn't help this time, unfortunately.

comment Removing address bar or Hiding its content from Windows Explorer - Windows Server 2008 R2
That would be like placing your door knob behind a curtain to obscure it and deter brake-ins, rather than, you know, locking the door.

comment Programmatically adding two lines to crontab
On that note, he could also place each script directly in /etc/cron.daily/, and /etc/cron.hourly/ respectively. But I figured this way was the path of least resistance.
